The 34th Weston Prom 5 series set for lift-off

THE 2016/17 Weston Prom 5 miles series, which is sponsored by Easy Runner, gets underway next Thursday (September 22nd).

This popular event is now in its 34th year and is probably the longest running series of its kind in the West Country.

Thursday’s race is the first of nine monthly events held every month including December and for the record the dates are as follows: October 20th; November 24th, December 22nd; 2017 – January 19th; February 16th; March 23rd; April 20th and May 18th.

The race HQ is at the Bay Cafe in the Tropicana, Marine Parade, Weston BS23 1BE and entries can be made in advance or on the night.

Competitors please note that individual points are worked out from the best six of the first eight races. April is the last race that will count for individual points. The ninth race in May is excluded so that we can get the prizes out quicker on the final night. However the Team prizes are worked out from all 9 races.

There will also be one mile fun runs with free entry for the under 16s and £2 for all other entries.
